Tatty Teddy CAS

Before I get to my card  this evening I thought I would share with you all that I started Slimming World at the beginning of July....... a few of you already know this but I was very happy last night at the scales as I lost another 2.5lbs making a total of 19.5lbs so far and the extra surprise was that I was awarded Slimmer of the month!   Feeling very positive about it all at the moment and hope that this feeling continues as I still have a mountain to climb.

Right onto my cards.......  I have gone totally CAS at the moment and I am loving these cards and the shape too.  I am addicted!

Tatty Teddy has been dusted off and inked up again.....  its a very long time since he made an appearance!

The card blanks are made using white cardstock from The Papermill Direct
Ribbon from Hobbycraft
Twine from stash
Sentiment - Ladybug Crafts Ink.

Nothing else to say about them....... 

Hope you are all doing ok.
Have a good evening and I wil try and get round your blogs very soon as I know I am missing some fantastic creations :(

Thanks for popping over.
